You Have All Got It Right


1.  "The Yankees will drift toward the wild card if some dramatic and logical changes are not made."

2.  "One of those changes is to drop/trade NEAL Walker."

3.  "Another is to bring up Clint Frazier and let him play a lot in the outfield and as DH, if needed."

4.  "The fourth is to bat Torres in the middle of the line-up."


In case you haven't figured it out, the observations come separately, and independently, from each of  the above fans, reading from left to right.

I would like to offer a fifth mandate;

5.  The Yankees should only offer money, and maybe Drury/Walker/Chance Adams for a bum pitcher.  They are not going to win the AL East no matter what they do, so they should not tear-up the fabric of what they have been building.  Stay with the players in our system, including the pitchers.  If we lose, we lose.  But the strength of this team is obviously in the rookies and near rookies.  Even Cashman can see that.  Can't he?

Those women are obviously very intelligent.

I can see their large brains from here.

Yes on all 5 points but, when you say "Even Cashman can see that. Can't he?", you must remember that it's crackhead Cash we are talking about. It's like talking about the bad alcoholic or drug addict (are there degrees here? can one be half-pregnant?) and you say "Gee whiz, doesn't Joe see what he's doing to his family?" or "Why can't Billy just get that it's the crack that messing up his life?"

NO, Cashman does not get that because his beady eyes are already glazing over and rolling back into his head. His thoughts are all on Hap, Hip, Hop and Hep, or whatever the name is of the latest has-been retread loser coulda-been never-was rubber arm that just flopped off somebody else's griddle and is still writing around on the floor. He does not get it. He never has and, at this point, it's clear he never will.

Just be done with it. Trade the farm for a useless arm and let's get back to gunning for the wild card and hitting lots of homers in meaningless situations.

Seriously--who the fuck wants Neil Walker? They're just going to have to release him.

BEAUTIFULLY put, Alphonso. I have never felt prouder to call you my Dauntless Leader.

And hey, sometimes genius comes cloaked in beauty. I know that's the case with me.

I fear that 13bit is right, though.

Right now, Coops is that 35-year-old addict still living at home, who has just been going through his parents' dresser. He his holding that priceless family heirloom in his sweaty hands, thinking, 'Hell, they'll never miss it. I can get the cash and redeem it from the pawn shop before they ever notice. I can borrow a ten spot from Candice, and Jerry owes me a ten, and-and-and...I can knock over that liquor store, if I have to!'

Oh my forking fork, the fork forkers.

I'm more surprised it took him this long to fall apart. They'll lose this game because once again they're allergic to driving in runs.

You don’t win in the post season hitting only home runs.

Cue TWW, Cut and Paste, whoooooooop!!!!!!

A win tonight, yes, but what a squalid, pathetic little game. I am fast losing whatever remains of the enthusiasm I managed to summon for this team in the first months of the season.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Au contraire—or whatever they say in Austria—my Transalpine friend!

It was actually a fascinating little game, full of unexpected surprises from any number of unusual suspects. More on this shortly!
